Olay celebrates importance of 'besties' in China

Campaign by Grey Hong Kong focuses on best friends who always have each other's back.

The agency notes that in a society where many people have no siblings, best friends are a significant source of support and companionship. Olay's 'Besties' campaign falls under the brand's 'Fearless of age' platform. In addition to the video above, based on real consumer-submitted stories, the campaign involved more than 6000 key influencers who created social-media posters, which in turn led to 10,000 user-generated submissions.
